Hello I am new to city-data.com and my questions might cause a stir so please be nice

I am not sure if anyone has asked these questions recently enough to be credible but here goes. I am from Illinois I’m black and I’m a republican I make above middle class income and I am looking to move to Tyler TX my questions are.
1. Do you see Interracial couples in Tyler Texas? Or, Are their Interracial couples in Tyler Texas?(specifically black and white interracial couples)
2. What is the response interracial couples get in Tyler Texas? Or, How are interracial couples treated in Tyler Texas?
3. Are their multicultural churches in Tyler Texas?
4. Is their interracial marriage in these multicultural churches? (specifically black and white interracial marriages)

Feel free to mention places in smith county since Tyler-TX is in it.

All four of my kids are biracial and they never had any problems dating (and eventually getting married). My oldest daughter and her husband are interracially married (she is half black and half white and he is white) and got married in church right here in Tyler. Then they lived in Tyler for several years.

They are in their mid thirties now and come back often to visit. No issues that I know of.

I am interracially married (BW/WM). I live outside of Waco. We are not having any problems at all. People here are less of a hassle than in PA.

Default A bit more info

My family is a combination of ethnicities, though not specifically black/white, and we have had no problems so far, but we are very very new in Tyler. Only moved here in March. We looked specifically for a part of town that is more mixed races than not, and found it, during our home search.

My real estate agent and his wife are a mixed race couple, black and white. I asked him in some detail about his family's experience here in Tyler, especially his childrens'. He is very positive about the area.

If you don't mind sharing what area did you settle in? I am AA but would love an area that's diversified. Looking to relocate next summer.
